How and where is moonstone formed?

The most well-known feldspar gemstone, moonstone has been found in India, Sri Lanka, and here in Australia. Named for its moon-like glow, moonstone is identified by its mystical opalescent shimmer. This spectacular optical effect known as adularescence occurs when alternating layers of different feldspars cause a magical interference of light when it enters the stone.

Caring for your moonstone crystals.

Gently clean your moonstone with warm soapy water and a soft cloth, and charge with the energy of the moon by leaving out in the moonlight overnight. Always store your moonstone jewellery separately away from other jewellery and objects that may scratch or damage it.
